TROY - Troy Borough Manager Dan Close said Tuesday that "the word is out" about the possibility of a Dunkin' Donuts coming to Troy.

At borough council's regular monthly meeting, site plan drawings for the proposed development were reviewed by council members and the public. The drawings are dated Jan. 9.

According to a description on the site plan drawings, the business is being proposed for a vacant lot located along Route 6 (Elmira Street) in Troy Borough, which Calkins Motor Sales previously used to store and display its inventory.

Close described the location as "between the (Sugar) creek and the Shaylor property."

The Dunkin' Donuts would have a drive-through, parking, and an outdoor patio, according to information from the documents.

"This is currently in the hands of the planning commission," Close told council. "It's their job to review this."

He called the site plan drawings a "very preliminary sketch-up."

Close said the creation of design plans is the next step in the process. They must also be reviewed.

"At this point, it's informational for you," Close told council.

The description on the site plan drawings notes that the project would only require a slight increase in impervious area. "Impervious area" can mean blacktop, though the plans don't specify the type of material.

Also, it would require two separate curb-cuts along Route 6, with approval from PennDOT.

It notes that the eastern curb-cut would be an "exit only" one, and the proposed development would connect to existing water and sanitary sewer utilities, with appropriate approvals from the local municipal authorities.

Any proposed signage and outdoor lighting will comply with the borough and county's development standards, according to the site plan information.
